This rare chart covers from Florida and the Gulf Coast region through Central American and the northern part of South America. It provides a very detailed view of the Bahamas and West Indies with soundings, shoals and anchorages noted. We located the map in a few public institutional collections but cannot find catalog or auction records for it.


Condition: B+

Issued folded, now flattened with some minor tissue repairs at fold intersections. There is some faint toning and a repaired tear in the Gulf of Venezuela.

Estimate: $1,500 - $2,000

Sold for: $3,000
